The Gunsmith Academy moves forward

The Gunsmith Academy now has official approval to move through to the next stage of developing the fully accredited Gunsmith apprenticeship standard. If you’d like to understand why this is crucial, see the Gunsmith apprenticeship standard post on the blog.

On the 30th January a variety of businesses within the sector meet with the depart of education representative to jointly present the standard and seek final approval. This approval will unlock a wide range of funding options that allow the Academy to be formed.

The meeting is being held at Birmingham Gun proof which physically hasn’t changed since the film below. However the Birmingham Gun Proof also understand the need for standards across the board, having recently been given ISO 17025 accreditation for its laboratory.
